This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for your participation.
The winner is comment #256: Marcia Goss.

Girlie Girl has been learning a lot about Martin Luther King, Jr. at school recently. In fact, she knows more about him than I do. She can tell you his birthday, his favorite sport to play, how he liked to ride his bike and sing songs in church.

In honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., from now through Feb. 28, The Home Depot is offering a commemorative “Dream” gift card celebrating his legacy in their Build the Dream campaign. When consumers purchase the collector’s edition “Dream” gift card, The Home Depot will donate five percent of all sales to the Center for Civil and Human Rights, up to $1 million dollars. The donation will assist in the building of a permanent exhibition home for his personal writings and papers.

The collection of original documents by Dr. King includes more than 10,000 items, among them 7,000 handwritten notes spanning from 1946 to 1968. They include drafts of his “I Have a Dream” speech, his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail,” other theological writings and his Nobel Peace Prize addresses. The King Papers will be part of the exhibition offering of The Center for Civil and Human Rights. The Dream cards can be purchased at any store, or online at homedepot.com/dream.
